    Low carbon steel, it'll season like cast iron, the more you use it the better it performs.

    We've had a set of carbon steel frypans for over a decade.  We love them and they get better every year.  It's a great metal for putting heat to meat.

    Anyone have any pics of meat and veggies on the two tier rack.
    Here's my setup.  Cooking some jerk chicken down below and some plantains on top :)



    Thanks for the pic that's exactly what I would like to do, can the top grid be removed relatively easy and then lowered and used above the coals for searing have you tried that Sgt.

    Cheers

    WOW!!!! Blown away with this thread! Once again thank you to everyone that has commented and for all the orders that have been coming in. I'm truly touched.

    Warranty wise, I feel our product is well built to withstand some very long term use, should anyone have an issue please let me know and I'll work with you as best I can, customer support is very important to me!!

    With the use of the plate setter or any type of indirect setup, I would recommend ordering the post kit. What this will do is give you more flexibility for the up and down feature the upper rack has. With the standard post, you will strike the indirect setup below the main, so switching out the shafts will gain you more functionality.

    If you have any questions please contact me.

    Thanks again everyone.

    The upper rack can be removed pretty easy, however they cannot be reversed.....smaller grate on the bottom and bigger on top. I never intended for the system to be reversed. If I understood your question correctly??

    That's alright no I was just wondering if the top grate could be removed and used seperatley for searing steaks lower in the coals, maybe using the spider.
  • CGW1CGW1 Posts: 332
    I got ya now!!! All I can tell you is to give it a try.....if it'll fit. I don't think you want to wedge it in your firebox, as it expands with heat it may crack your box, and placing it between your fire ring and fire box would be to big a hassel, so you might be better off just using the spider.

    The top grate is very easy to remove. I remove both separately when I light the XL for ease. They have some weight to them, but again, that's the quality of the racks.

    It would be nice if someone came up with a simple adapter to allow a weber grate to be swung out above the original BGE grate.  Kind of like the post kit.  I don't really see any need to replace the original grate and the weber 18" grates are cheap and can be found anywhere.

    I did see some plans to something someone made themselves using simple bolts, however I have only been able to find bolts coated in Zinc.

    I think I may have found the answer to my question and with a little help from you all.

    I own an XL and have been looking for an upper rack for cooking my veggies, I have also been looking for a lower cast iron grill, and then a smaller cast iron grill for searing steaks and what not lower over the coals as a lot of you do, I wondered if I could take the upper rack from the swing rack and place it on a spider and use it for searing, and it looks like according to Sgt its pretty easy to take off.  So I looked at the spider on the ceramic grill store and it will take an 18 inch grate which is perfect:


    So I am going to go with the swing rack, and 1.25 inch spider for searing, dang I need a wok too.

    Thanks for all the info and helping me make my decision.

    Cheers

    @Stoater congrats! Yes, the top grate just lifts out of the bottom grate and only takes a second.  Very easy and convenient if you only want to use the bottom grate for a cook.

    CGWI have ordered a swing rack for the Large BGE, but did not order the post kit. Have a question.

    Can I use a pizza stone on the top shelf. Will a BGE pizza stone fit into the dome when on the top shelf?

    Oh. And I have not recd any conf/email of it being shipped.

    Aviator,

    Yes you can do 2 pizzas at the same time. I have a photo I can upload, but it's not on an egg, so I'm a little reluctant to post it.

    The post kit is really for indirect setups, if your doing your pies indirect you still really don't need it for pizzas, but more so for thicker meats done up top...butts etc. if you think you need it you can order it and I'll include it with your rack order.

    This thread has been awesome, but due to this thread, I'm now sold out as of Tuesday, I'll be restocked in about 2-3 wks and I'll follow up to your email order with your FedEx tracking number once the order has shipped.

    Any questions, please feel free to call me.

    I had to wait a few weeks for my 2-Tier, it was painful but worth it :) In the meantime, I can keep posting pics of cooks to rub it in :))

    Hey its the rack we are interested in, we can't help it if your using an inferior grill.  I would like to see some pics, help reassure me and pass the time till you get some more stock.   :)
  • CGW1CGW1 Posts: 332
    Inferior grill??...now now be nice!!
    :((

    Here are some pics and I promise I'll have some on an egg at some point.

    As fast as pizzas cook, do you really need to do 2 at once?
